At its annual gala, the Finnish Foundation for Share Promotion (Pörssisäätiö), a foundation promoting securities investment and the securities market, rewarded Konecranes as the best Finnish Large Cap company on furthering diversity. Diversity and inclusion are cornerstones of Konecranes’ culture and business, propelling its performance and organization.

With the award, Konecranes was praised for its all-company diversity trainings, set targets, activities and processes. Konecranes has placed special focus on key topics such as inclusive recruitment and accountability.

“Diversity and inclusion are key for our culture and performance as a company. We are humbled to receive this award, with big thanks to our people who made our progress a reality through their participation and commitment”, Konecranes Interim CEO Teo Ottola says.

Konecranes has made diversity and inclusion a top priority, with an ambition to reshape both the company and industry. In 2019, the company established the position of Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer and embarked on a multi-year roadmap. Diversity brings a wide range of benefits: improving innovation and performance, enabling employees to have equal opportunities and being close to customers by representing the societies the company operates in.

Progress is monitored through a set of key metrics, including gender balance as well as representation of nationalities and geographies. To ensure everyone’s involvement, trainings on diversity and inclusion are mandatory for the entire company.

“I’m proud of our progress. Inclusion is underpinning our culture and we have made improvements in our gender representation and diversity is being advanced on all levels and sectors of the company. Still, there is much to achieve for both us and the industry and we are determined to be pioneers in that work”, Konecranes Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer Mara Zavagno says.
